Bit About Me

Hi!

I'm Parmeet Arora Bori, an artist, illustrator, surface pattern designer based in London. My focus is split between surface design and illustration.

 

On the Surface Pattern side: I love creating bright abstracts, bold Indian/Islamic influence (prints) and nature inspired surface pattern designs (for the fashion, textileshome decor and stationery markets). I use a mix of traditional painting-drawing methods and digital design. These works are regularly added to my surface design library that is available for licensing directly from me and various print studios.

In the Illustration sector: I'm currently concentrating on illustrations based on celebrating myself as an individual (having her own likes and dislikes) after being a mother, travel sketches and mixed media - especially Dioramas based on nature study. 

I offer custom print reproductions for some of my work and I'm interested in continuing working with art galleries and corporate art consultants.

My art is inspired by so many things: The energy of people,my childhood, travels, folk-art and the meditative qualities of forests, oceans and lakes. The mood boards in my mind are based on books, movies, blogs, fashion and magazines. My son is also a constant source of inspiration - I re-learn something new every day from him. 

I feel blessed to be married to my soul-mate, who gets excited about every little and big idea I have. I am especially grateful overall to a supportive loving family that surrounds me always.
